Structural Analysis and Synthesis

Stephen M. Rowland

Structural Analysis and Synthesis  is the best-selling laboratory manual of its kind. Specifically designed to support the laboratory work of undergraduates in structural geology courses, the book helps students analyze the various aspects of geological structures, and to combine their analyses into an overarching synthesis.  This book is intended for use in the laboratory portion of a first course in structural geology.  As is explicit in the title, this book is concerned with both the analysis and synthesis of structural features. In this 4th edition, the focus of this popular manual has been broadened to include a range of new content and features, including:  Video content which demonstrates visually how to perform some of the more challenging structural geology techniques An acknowledgement of the increasing importance of environmental applications of structural geology – vital to students who may go on to pursue careers in the environmental sphere An increased emphasis on quantitative techniques, complete with descriptions of computer program applications Contingent with this quantitative emphasis, the book also outlines the limitations of such techniques, helping students to appropriately apply the techniques and evaluate their trustworthiness  Structural Analysis and Synthesis, 4th edition  is a renowned and widely recognized aid to students in grasping and mastering the techniques required in structural geology, and will find a home wherever the principles and practices of structural geology are taught.

Oceans For Dummies

Joseph Kraynak

Dive deep to explore the ocean From how most of our oxygen is created by phytoplankton, to how currents control our climate, to the marine food chain and the importance of coral, this is the holy grail of ocean books that’s easy for everyone to digest.  It features fun facts about some of the most incredible, bizarre, and fascinating creatures in the ocean, from mantis shrimp that can strike things with the speed of a .22 caliber bullet to fish with clear heads that can see out of the top of their skulls. The ocean is full of wonders and there is still so much left to explore and understand. How our oceans work What creatures live in the ocean Find out how the ocean regulates our climate and weather patterns How growing pollution threatens our ocean and its inhabitants Oceans For Dummies is perfect for anyone with an interest in the ocean, including kids, adults, students, ocean lovers, surfers, fishermen, conservationists, sailors, and everyone in between.

Методы и средства геоконтроля. Методические указания по проведению практических занятий и самостоятельной работы студентов специальности 21.05.05 «Физические процессы горного или нефтегазового производства»

А. С. Вознесенский

Методические указания содержат описания пяти практических занятий по дисциплине «Методы и средства геоконтроля» и соответствуют программе этой дисциплины. Каждое практическое задание выполняется за несколько аудиторных занятий, а также во время самостоятельной работы. Задание предусматривает самостоятельный ввод и отладку компьютерных программ в среде Mathcad, с помощью которых обучающиеся изучают влияние различных факторов на результаты геоконтроля. Такое построение занятий способствует развитию у них углубленного мышления и навыков самостоятельной работы. Для студентов специальности 21.05.05 «Физические процессы горного или нефтегазового производства», изучающих курс «Методы и средства геоконтроля», а также студентов других специальностей, инженерно-технического персонала и научных работников, деятельность которых связана с геоконтролем и геомониторингом.

Bodies, Affects, Politics

Steve Pile

This book seeks to understand the coexistence of bodily regimes and the politics that emerge from the clash between them: Presents a novel conceptual model for understanding the relationship between bodies and affects Reworks Rancière's notions of the distribution of the sensible and the aesthetic unconscious Establishes a dynamic and multiple understanding of the repressive, distributive and communicative unconscious by rethinking Freudian psychoanalysis Utilizes a variety of empirical materials, from Hollywood movies to Freud's case studies Sets its argument about politics within the context of significant social events to ensure its conceptual and empirical material is relevant to the contemporary political moment

Introduction to Ore-Forming Processes

Laurence Robb

A comprehensive account of ore-forming processes, revised and updated The revised second edition of Introduction to Ore-Forming Processes  offers a guide to the multiplicity of geological processes that result in the formation of mineral deposits. The second edition has been updated to reflect the most recent developments in the study of metallogeny and earth system science. This second edition contains new information about global tectonic processes and crustal evolution that continues to influence the practice of economic geology and maintains the supply of natural resources in a responsible and sustainable way. The replenishment of depleted natural resources is becoming more difficult and environmentally challenging. There is also a change in the demand for mineral commodities and the concern around the non-sustainable supply of ‘critical metals’ is now an important consideration for planners of the future. The book puts the focus on the responsible custodianship of natural resources and the continuing need for all earth scientists to understand metallogeny and the resource cycle. This new edition: Provides an updated guide to the processes involved in the formation of mineral deposits Offers an overview of magmatic, hydrothermal and sedimentary ore-forming processes Covers the entire range of mineral deposit types, including the fossil fuels and supergene ores Relates metallogeny to global tectonics by examining the distribution of mineral deposits in space and time Contains examples of world famous ore deposits that help to provide context and relevance to the process-oriented descriptions of ore genesis Written for students and professionals alike, Introduction to Ore-Forming Processes  offers a revised second edition that puts the focus on the fact that mineral deposits are simply one of the many natural wonders of geological process and evolution.
